After Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival as Manchester United’s manager, the Red Devils philosophy has changed towards emphasizing more on youth.
The Norwegian’s already given debuts to multiple youngsters and has his sights on signing some world-class young talents (Jadon Sancho, Declan Rice and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were all linked by the Sun) in the summer.
United have been linked to many young players over the months and Hirving Lozano is one they’ve been scouting for many years. According to reports (via TeamTalk), the Mexican winger is also ready to move to Old Trafford if they pursue him. He’s apparently asked his compatriot Javier Hernandez about life at United, getting only received positive responses.
Lozano’s having a stellar season with Dutch side PSV Eindhoven, having scored 17 goals and assisted 4 in 27 appearances. He also excelled in the UEFA Champions League, providing some bright performances to prove what a rousing talent he really is. With only a release clause of £30 million, the Mexican could be signed by them in the summer.
Solskjaer would ravish a blooming talent like Lozano, who loves to take his chances in moving forward, creating chances while also getting into prime goal-scoring positions. The 23-year-old, who is valued at £36 million (by Transfermarkt), can operate with ease from the right, having the ability to cross the ball well and also cut into the box to cause real threat.
In many ways, he’d go some way into finally replacing Javier Hernandez at Old Trafford. Not since the Mexico legend have United had such an unpredictable fox in the box to bring on late in games, really sticking it to any opposition and creating such an element of danger in the dying embers of close games.
The Mexican’s a pacy, cunning figure who knows how to break defences and score goals. Lozano can be everything Alexis Sanchez couldn’t at Old Trafford, as he’ll ravish operating in the youth set-up and help get them back into playing like the old days.
